Harman Model?

A Coal stoker furnace or stove controls most operations including automatically feeding the coal. They are quite similar to any conventional oil and gas units and easily operated for extended periods of time. They commonly use rice coal but may use larger sizes like buckwheat. They can be used as primary heat, supplementary heat or have a dual set up with your existing oil/gas furnace.

It's an old school mag stoker. I believe it has a one piece grate. Later models had a two piece insert style grate system. Those one piece grates are scarcer than hens teeth. There just happens to be one for sale on Craigslist in Harrisburg.
